No one likes waiting around for water to boil. Whether you have a hungry baby or guests on their way over for an Italian meal, sometimes you need boiling water fast, and when you have a lot of different things going on in the kitchen, you need to coordinate processes perfectly. You no longer need to wait, thanks to the hot water system provided by the Blanco Tampera Hot. A convenient 3-in-1 system, it not only dispenses warm and cold water, but also boiling hot water, via a separate control unit. This allows you to fill up a pot of water for spaghetti, blanch vegetables or warm your baby’s bottle in no time at all. The high, curved fixed spout offers you plenty of room within the bowl, while the mixer tap’s slender silhouette lends it a timeless, elegant look.
The Tampera Hot frees up not only valuable time, but also space on your worktop, as the system does away with the need for a kettle. And there’s more besides: the multi-stage filter built into the base cabinet purifies and refines the water before it is heated, thus ensuring maximum drinking pleasure. Of course, Blanco is highly committed to ensuring maximum safety for everyday use, so the integrated safety mechanism allows boiling water to be dispensed only if the separate hot water rotary knob is pressed down and turned at the same time. As soon as it is released, the knob springs back to its original position, stopping the flow of boiling water immediately.
“The system is designed to hold 2.5 litres of boiling water at any one time, so there’s no need to wait for it,” explains Olaf Stenvers, Senior Product Manager. The high-quality technology behind the system is hidden away in the base cabinet. The central component is the boiler, which is made of corrosion-resistant and taste-neutral titanium, and keeps hot water available at 105°C: “This means that the water comes out of the mixer tap at almost 100°C. The high temperature also prevents germs from building up in the boiler,” says Stenvers.
Blanco relies on high quality of all components and has teamed up with the renowned Austrian brand BWT. The space-saving system mounted on the rear wall of the cabinet prepares the tap water using a multi-stage process before it is heated by the boiler. The filter is easy to replace. The Blanco Flowmeter issues an alert when it is time to change the cartridge. The small device measures the amount of water flowing through the filter and gauges the water hardness. This allows it to calculate the filter’s capacity, as shown via a countdown.
The hot water system can also be fitted by an expert. There is also room for a waste management system: the Blanco Select Compact 60/2 now comes in a special version that makes it an ideal match for new mixer taps like the Tampera Hot.
